Update on the Ptarmingan
I lost the pads on the rear brakes and was stopping on the caliper...burned through the rotors and had to replace the calipers. Made a few calls and stopped the Mountain High Performance to have a load Cryo-ed. Slotted and cross drilled rotors from Christo, a new set of American made drill bits, and some left hand drill bits and extractors made in PRC
, all got frozen.
I also have been working on the new leather and went to the source for a real set of hog ring pliers. $65.00 out the door, not Chinese made, and should last well beyond just this set of leather.
The brand is C.S. Osborne, Harrison New Jersey.
